Jared Knight is the manager of programs for BYU Aspen Grove Family Camp in Utah. In designing children's programs for the last twenty years, Jared has created six exciting books. These books include over 1,000 games and activities that camp professionals, parents, teachers, youth-organization volunteers, and corporate activity leaders can use in creating programs for children and youth. In every game or activity, elements of teambuilding, citizenship, and leadership are included in the outline with immediate outcomes and objectives to assist in child development. Jared works with over 5,000 children each summer and fall in a camp setting. During the winter months, he organizes youth conferences at Aspen Grove where over 4,000 youth and leaders participate in recreation activities such as cross-country skiing/snowshoeing. Participants also receive instructional workshops where they are taught character development, responsibility and accountability. Jared has served as the president of the Southwest Section of the American Camp Association. Jared's recreation background also includes; a camp director for the Boy Scouts of America, Intramural Supervisor for Brigham Young University, Intern at Walt Disney World, and Director of Development at United Way of Utah County. Jared holds a bachelor's degree in recreation management and youth leadership and a master's degree in public administration from Brigham Young University. He has been a volunteer leader for the Boy Scouts of America for the last ten years. He has also been a volunteer for the American Red Cross, Kids on the Move, Mountain Lands Community Health Clinic, Recreation and Habilitation Services, North Fork Special Services, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (as a missionary in Canada.) Jared's hobbies include camping, backpacking, reading, and spending time with his family. In addition to writing books, Jared is a presenter for 26 instructional DVDs on games and activities and has been a regular author for Camp Business Magazine. He is a presenter of recreational programming at many national conferences and educational events.
